Accepting the Lance – Chapter 72

In which Korval catches up on the morning news.

There seems to me to be a lot of book left for where we’re at.

The Department seems to be well in hand, likewise the Assembly. Things with Rys and the Bedel have some playing out to do, but it doesn’t seem likely there are going to be any major surprises.

What does that leave us? Boss Surebleak’s response to the election. And whatever the Clutch technical team is going to do that justifies its presence in the story, because so far that hasn’t really affected anything else that’s going on.

But there are quite a few pages left…

    Yep. This chapter felt like an interlude with exposition. I had no notes to myself marked in the entire chapter. On first read, I was still a bit apprehensive about Rys, but I didn’t care about the election, and I assumed Boss Surebleak would have been left without motivation to continue, now that the DOI was basically dismantled.

    NOTE: The newest story—The Gate that Locks the Tree: Adventures in the Liaden Universe No. 30—will be available electronically on February 19 . . . that’s less than 2 days away!

    Paul: will you take time out to do this new novelette? Or wait till you’ve finished Accepting the Lance?

    Ed8r, I’ll probably read it soon after it comes out, but the blog post will go in the queue, and will show up in about a month, after the rest of Accepting the Lance and then the post for “A Visit to the Galaxy Ballroom”.
